Conductor takes baton to continue school work
THE focus of classical music over the last month has largely been the annual Dartington International Summer School.
While this has now closed for another year, Dartington Hall Trust has recently announced that internationally-acclaimed oboist and conductor Nicholas Daniel, has taken over the role of Artistic Director, succeeding John Woolrich, who held the post for the last three years, the new appointment coinciding with the Summer School celebrating 60 successful years on the Dartington Estate.
Nicholas said: "I am delighted to continue the work of Gavin Henderson and John Woolrich.
"There are wonderful opportunities here to focus what currently goes on, while Dartington itself is a magnificent place to be creative.

"The inclusive nature of the Summer School will continue to be at its heart and I am looking forward to finding ever more stimulating and appropriate courses and activities for people who attend, as well as for those who join us for single events and concerts."
Dartington's Director of Arts David Francis added: "I am really pleased that Nick's ambition is to build on John's success, which will ensure Dartington maintains its international reputation as a leading Summer School and continues to bring together the amazing mix of people which makes it unique and a place of exciting creative possibilities."
